Cinderella....a dream is a wish your heart makes....

As a child I watched Disney's animated Cinderella over and over and over... it was my favorite princess story. I mean I literally would watch it everyday. I actually got it for Christmas this year on DVD!

When I saw they were making a live-action version of the film, I was skeptical. Many times the remake isn't as good as the original, but I truly did think this movie was magical.

This film was really well done. The cast, costumes, and animation were all amazing!

Lily James played an excellent Cinderella. She was a natural beauty and then was transformed into the princess she was meant to be before our eyes. 

Richard Madden is known for playing a fine prince. I know him from playing Robb Stark on Game of Thrones. He was a great choice for this role!

I loved the costumes. They were well put together and full of color! I wish I could have wore some of the beautiful ball gowns!

If you haven't ever watched Cinderella. It's a story of overcoming obstacles that life throws at you. Ella had a beautiful life until tragedy strikes her family. She is left with her stepmother who would rather treat Ella as a servant than a stepdaughter. Ella overcomes hurdles keeping her away from the ball and with a little help from her Fairy Godmother, she is able to get to the ball held at the palace by the Prince.

Please go watch it! It was such a good story. I think children and adults alike can appreciate the movie.

Before the movie even started, we got to watch Disney's short film called Frozen Fever. It was super cute! I loved Frozen, so I was looking forward to this short film. It didn't disappoint. It was funny, cute and entertaining all in a few short minutes to celebrate Anna's birthday!

All our favorite Frozen characters took a few new friends!

I can't wait until Frozen 2 comes out in a few years!

I would definitely recommend seeing Cinderella. I think it follows the animated film closely and it displays a good message to children. 

Have courage and be kind...

Until next time,

Date Night Jar

The Hubby and I have been together 8 years. The one thing we have consistently argued over for those 8 years is the question, "What do you want to do?"

I consider us to both be intelligent adults, but when that question comes out of the other persons mouth its like we become fools and have no thoughts.

Our common answer is "I don't know" or "I don't care". 

Well I found something to fix that problem. Our date night jar!

I saw the idea on Pinterest (where all ideas live of course) and decided it was an inexpensive, crafty solution to our problem.

All you need are Popsicle sticks, markers, a jar, and your list of activities you want to use.

Both the Hubby and I brainstormed ideas in the categories of free dates, cheap dates, more expensive dates, and plan ahead dates.

Here is our example list:

Making the list was the hardest part. There are a lot of online links for date ideas. Just cater your list to your tastes and preferences!

This doesn't really requ…

Songs I am Obsessed With Right Now

Maybe I am the only person, but when I hear a song I like on the radio I kind of get obsessed with it. I just want it to come on all the time! Or I go home and YouTube it over and over!

Here are a few of the songs I love right now!

This song by the Chainsmokers is awesome. It has such a great beat and it's always on the radio right now!

Dan and Shay are a great country duo, but From the Ground Up is such a beautiful song. I absolutely love it.

Florida Georgia Line has never put out a bad song. It took me a few times for me to get into this one, but I really like the song. It's another I love to sing when it comes across the radio (which is quite a bit).

I hope you enjoy your day! 

Until next time,

Mixed Feelings for Sure...

I am not one to post much about politic things. I think it's best just to keep my mouth shut about how I feel about politics, because it just starts arguments between friends.

Well Donald Trump will be our 45th president. I have so many mixed emotions about this...

I am scared for the possibilities that he brings with no experience. I am scared that the people who got out and voted were fueled by hate, not change. That they were scared because they are getting left behind by technology, scared because people with education are bypassing them for more opportunities, that social norms are changing and it's not acceptable to them.

I am scared that people think it's okay for Donald to have mocked a disabled reporter, to have said demeaning things about women and it be okay, to be openly hateful to people of other cultures and that being considered American pride.

I want a world for my daughter to be kind, accepting, understanding. We are not all the same, we have different opportu…
